“Wonderful Accommodation”
Reviewed March 26, 2010

We stayed at Sweet Gum Bottom whilst on a Robert Trent Jones Golf tour of Alabama. Sweet Gum Bottom was a substitute location when our first location closed down. What a substitute it proved to be. Quite easy to find with our GPS and located in a lovely country area, Laura met us with such friendship and hospitality we knew we would have a good stay. We could not help notice the beautiful décor on the way to our room, which similarly turned out to be immaculate in every way. As we had not eaten for ages Laura recommended an Italian restaurant in Andalusia. As we were not certain quite where to go Laura and Ricky drove in front of us to the location and stayed on for a meal with us (at our invitation), where we met up with their daughter. After dinner we returned to Sweet Gum Bottom and met up with another 'Brit' who was working in the area. We sat talking and drinking coffee into the very late evening and went to bed feeling as if we were part of the family. As we had to leave very early the next morning to make our tee time at Highland Oaks near Dothan, Laura must have been up at the crack of dawn to prepare a fantastic breakfast that certainly satisfied our hunger pains right through the golf. We are planning another RTJ golf trip early next year and Sweet Gum Bottom will be the top of our accommodation list.

I suprised my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary by coming here. While only an hour from our house, it felt worlds away. The house is stunning and yet homey, the grounds beautiful and relaxing. Dont miss out on the scrap books about the history, move and restoration of this home. The food is absolutely delicious and the hosts were so friendly and made us feel right at home. The hosts know the area well. The chapel looks old although its not. and is simply gorgeous. I would love to renew our vows there. Had i known about this place 5 years ago, this is where I would have got married at. They even offer massage, romance or birthday packages. We will DEFINATELY be back!

My husband and I had to take a business trip to Andalusia, and we had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were SO pleased with the house, the service, the comfy bed, and the wonderful and relaxing feel that the place offered. Laura, the owner, was very sweet. Her breakfast was fabulous! We would highly recommend this place if you are in the area!!

Thanks so much for choosing us for your business trip. It is hard enough to be away from home, so it is really nice to be able to stay in a home, away from home!
